connectivity through pgaccess

Hi all,
At long last I have been able to create a database.Thanks but one issue still remains. I am able to connect to the database through a linux user(not postgres)from the command line.
However when I am trying to connect to the same database through pgaccess the application is giving an error "Connection refused". Can somebody please help??
Thanks and regards

RE: connectivity through pgaccess

Have you edited your pg_hba.conf file to allow for remote users to access the database?

Also, make sure the TCP/IP options is set to yes in your postgresql.conf file.

You have to ensure that postmaster is started with the -i flag to allow TCP/IP connections.
